1-up & Mushroom Pixel Cookie

2-faced: 1-up & Super Mushroom:

Super Mario Mushroom Pixel Cookie dough!

4 color mushroom sprite

 

Thanks to the great pixel-cookie tutorial at Instructables and this photostream made by SeattleJonman.

The sprite used (pictured on the right) is a 4-color simplification of the one found here, and was originally featured in the SNES game Super Mario All-stars.

Full disclosure: This was a test cookie (I was quite the pixel-cookie noob) and it was made from several slightly different mixes of dough, built over several sessions. Not quite fit for consumption (but still quite nice to look at!)

A look at the divide before the last lines are laid on top.

At first I planned on making just the red Super Mushroom, but after a few lines I decided to add the green and make it a 2 faced piece instead. Making for a total of 306 Playdough pressed lines (16×16=256 + 50 (green)) spread over 5 colors, or really, way too much for a cookie.

Baked disfigured mushroom cookies laid out

Cooling in between and using different dough mixes caused problems when trying to do the minification through pressure (described here by Evil Mad Scientist). The sheer thickness of the dough block didn’t help any either, and makes for rather skewed results.

Update: I’ve made another (better looking and very tasty) pixel cookie featuring the Reddit Alien!

19 Cookies made. Unfortunatly the bottom pixel were made with dough that didn't hold up..Time to get into the oven and sweat it out.Buttery, bubbling, artificially colored melting cookie dough mess!The two sprites together in better days showing great promise for the future.Yeah.... shouldn't have gone for that whole smaller cookie thingy. Who the hell wants a smaller cookie anyway?
